It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of seven-year IBEW 1245 member Shane Keyser, who lost his life in an auto accident on April 28, 2018.
Preliminary reports indicate that Brother Keyser, who worked as a PG&E Gas Compliance Rep out of Redding, was involved in a head-on collision while he was traveling back to his home in Cottonwood after assisting in preparations for the upcoming IBEW/PG&E Gas Rodeo event at the Winters Training Facility. Keyser was a well-known face at Gas Rodeos, even making it to the National Utility Locate Rodeo back in 2016.
Keyser is survived by his wife and three young children. A GoFundMe has been set up to support his family; please donate what you can using the link below. A vacation sale is also being coordinated with the company, and details will be posted here when they become available.
For those who wish to pay their respects, a viewing and service for Shane Keyser will be held on Friday, May 11th at the Neighborhood Church of Anderson and Cottonwood. Viewing 9:00 am-11:00 am and service at 11:00 am. Celebration of life will follow at the Shasta County Fairgrounds in Anderson.
